In this letter, dated February 5, 1947, United States Senator William Langer replies to G. Lyman of Stanton, North Dakota, who wrote Langer on January 28th 1947 to express opposition to the proposal to use lands along the Missouri River near Stanton as lieu lands to compensate members of the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold, North Dakota for lands they were losing as a result of the Garrison Dam project.
